Endemol Shine Group’s Nordics division is slated to lose two of its most senior executives come 2017.
Bertil Rosenlund, who has most recently served as chief operating officer and previously held the positions of GM and chief financial officer, is to depart the company after 11 years to “take a bit of a break before deciding what the next chapter may look like,” he said in a statement.
He has previously held senior positions at Mentorn Film & Television, STO-CPH Produktion, Studios A/S & Jenagade 22 A/S, Rubicon and Friday TV AB.
Victoria Kjellberg, who joined the group in 2009 as head of legal, is to exit as chief commercial officer. Prior to Endemol Shine Nordics, Kjellberg served as an associate at Wistrand Advokatbyrå.
An external search is currently under way to fill the soon-to-be vacated positions, with both Rosenlund and Kjellberg continuing in their roles into 2017 to facilitate a changeover.
There’s no word yet on who will take over the vacated roles.
“Bertil has served the Nordics Group of companies through many years and phases and been a huge support for the leadership teams across the companies during this time,” said Marcus Wolter (pictured), Endemol Shine Group chair for Northern Europe, in a statement. “As has Victoria, providing sage guidance for the teams in both legal and commercial capacities. When it comes to saying goodbye they will go with our very best wishes.”
Endemol Shine Nordics holds of a number of Scandinavian shops in its stable of production companies, including Meter Television, Stockholm-Köpenhamn Produktion and Filmlance International in Sweden; Metronome Productions in Denmark; Rubicon TV in Norway; and Endemol Shine Finland.
